SmartHeater provides carbon-neutral heating for construction projects

The SmartHeater unit keeps buildings warm and dry. It can reduce heating costs with 40 per cent compared to biodiesel.

During construction projects, diesel or propane heaters are normally used for keeping buildings warm and dry. Such heaters, however, are costly to use and emit greenhouse gases to the atmosphere.

Incoming industry regulations are, moreover, making emissions controls more of a priority for construction companies.

To make construction sites more energy efficient, as well as compliant with future regulations, new solutions are needed.

Energy-efficient heating system for construction projects

RoMy Clima has created the SmartHeater, a heating unit which uses energy from the air – inside and outside – to keep buildings warm and dry. The solution is based on a combination of ventilation and heat pump technologies.

The SmartHeater provides a heating effect approximately four to five times stronger than the incoming energy, for ventilated air and for distributed hot water.

The unit has been proven functional in temperatures as low as -20 °C . It can thus be used at almost any temperature.

SmartHeater's current setup supplies 90 KWh, but the system is scalable both up and down. The entire system is installed in a 10-ft steel container and can be moved from site to site.

Concrete benefits

The SmartHeater can replace old, fossil-fuel-based heating technology in the construction industry. This will reduce greenhouse gas emissions from construction projects, as well as cut heating costs by up to 40 per cent.

Market potential

The SmartHeater is currently being marketed towards the Nordic countries, because of strong economic incentives and regulatory requirements which stimulates a transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy in the construction sector. The target market, however, will gradually expand into the rest of the EU and to North America.

SmartHeater was developed by RoMy Clima, a company founded in 2015 by experts with more than 25 years’ experience in the heating and ventilation industry.
